 Singapore Health Quality Service Award 2023 (Silver)

Catherine Lim

Senior Patient Service Associate, Women's Clinic

When a patient arrived at the clinic in a wheelchair without her usual caregiver, I immediately recognised she would need additional assistance. Understanding her day at NUH involved multiple appointments, I took the initiative to collect her medication from the pharmacy to save her time. Her appreciation, evident in her smile when I complimented her new hairstyle, was heartwarming to say the least! I strive to be attentive to each patient's unique circumstances and act promptly to the best of my abilities.

Liu Hua Ying

Housekeeper, Group Hospitality

I remember assisting a patient who had accidentally soiled the common toilet. Noticing others waiting, I promptly cleaned the area. The patient was very apologetic and was embarrassed due to the incident but was met with my constant reassurance. His appreciation for what many might consider insignificant deeply touched me. Learning that a compliment had been sent about this incident was surprising and gratifying, as I view such actions as part of my duty.
